Google has been insisting for years that the mythical GDrive doesn't exist. But the company has been offering huge amounts of free online storage to Gmail, Picasa, and Google Docs for years.

Canonical bumps Ubuntu One paid accounts to 50GB, pulling even with Dropbox

Canonical has decided -- in response to user requests -- to give paid users of its Ubuntu One online sync and storage tool a big, fat boost in drive space. One recently made its way into Karmic Koala -- which has just reached beta.

GMail Drive Config: Someday it will mount multiple Gmail Drives

I've used the GMail Drive shell extension for a long time - it's a great way to utilize the copious amounts of free storage Google provides that I'd never fill with emails. When I read about Convivia's GMail Drive Config - a free tool that allows you to (theoretically) mount multiple GMail Drives - I was very intrigued. After installing it, however, I'm reminded that trying to get too much of a...

Looking for another online file hosting option? Orbitfiles offers 6gb of free storage. For a measly $5 a month, you can upgrade to the "Zeus package" with unlimited storage.

Mozy has been offering an excellent automated online backup service for Windows users for a while now, but the company has now launched a Mac OS X client.

Keep track with HiveLive

HiveLive is an online application designed to keep track of busy lifestyles. HiveLive is currently in beta form, and offered by invitation only.
